About Young, Josh

Josh Young transited Missouri countless times before he ever thought he wanted to live in the Show Me State. A graduate of the University of New Hampshire and Indiana University, Josh taught kids from college to kindergarten before doing a stint as a family services caseworker. One year, when he should have known better, he shouldered a sixty-pound backpack, hitchhiking around the United States. That grand adventure introduced him to the Missouri/Arkansas Ozarks.
Settling on a little farm deep in the woods near Branson (with Johnny and June Cash for neighbors briefly), Josh continued social work, while garnering a few awards for a locally syndicated humor column. He currently works and plays at his home at Long Creek Herb Farm. He is still trying to decide what to do when he grows up.
